The symposium aimed to build on the success of the Joining Forces conference on mortality and longevity held in Edinburgh in October 2009 by encouraging collaboration between disciplines in, for example, the actuarial, medical, social science and demographic fields. It was sponsored by the UK Mortality Research Steering Committee, the International Actuarial Association Mortality Working Group and our multidisciplinary partners. By hosting the conference adjacent to the Society of Social Medicine’s Annual Scientific Meeting in 2011 it was hoped to attract further participation from the medical, epidemiology and demography academic communities as well as the Actuarial Profession’s core membership.
The symposium provided a multi-disciplinary forum for the exchange of information on the latest relevant research, and also an opportunity to learn about established knowledge from a range of different disciplines, all with an interest in better understanding and managing this complex yet critical subject. The themes for this event were:
- ndividualised risk
- the international dimension.

Internal audit is often the Cinderella of the audit world. It’s a regulatory requirement for insurance companies to have an internal audit function, so why not make it as useful as possible? This session will look at how to link an internal audit plan to the risk register, and how that helps audit committees and boards to spot problems and fix them.
Climate change is one of the greatest risks facing our world today. Addressing it will require multi-faceted solutions. Through this panel session, we will explore the different levers that can be used to meet net-zero targets including climate science and data, government engagement, and mobilising green finance.
